With a smile on her face, she fought cancer and choose to spread awareness among commoners. It was in September last year when Tahira had revealed that she has been detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) breast cancer. Being quite open about her treatment, she has been sharing motivational quotes in order to keep her fans updated about her health.
Tahira’s latest post is about self-love and acceptance. Here are the excerpts from the post where she has mentioned about her journey of losing her hair. She wrote, “From my obsession with long hair, associating beauty with rapunzel tresses, and hiding most of the time behind my hair (as I felt secure, lest my crooked nose, or freckles or pimples or simply not so chiseled face isn’t exposed) to losing my hair, wearing extensions and a cap, going bald to now a short crop.”

WARNING!! Before you swipe left, some pictures might not go down too well with your palette. But I am hoping there is a change in the perception of that one perfect flavour that we have always had. The last couple of months have been an extreme case of metamorphosis for me. And I am not categorising it whether it was from a caterpillar to a butterfly phase or vice versa. I could be the larva or the pupa or any other intermediate stage as each phase is unique and special. But there is a deep sense of acceptance when it comes to the life cycle of this creature. Taking a ‘leaf’ from this caterpillars life, I feel I have undergone a tremendous change mentally and physically too. From my obsession with long hair, associating beauty with rapunzel tresses, and hiding most of the time behind my hair (as I felt secure , lest my crooked nose, or freckles or pimples or simply not so chiseled face isn’t exposed) to losing my hair, wearing extensions and a cap, going bald to now a short crop. I am enjoying every phase because somehow with hair I lost my insecurity, my stupid notion of beauty and my complexes. I don’t know whether I’ll keep long hair or not, in either case I am not going to hide my face. I don’t claim to have refined beauty, but I have changed my own mindset and my biggest victory is changing the mindset and perception of my 7 year-old-son, the next generation. From running to get a cap and placing it on my head when I was losing my hair and had a bald patch to proudly introducing me to his friends when I was bald or now with short hair, I feel I am a part of a change. This post is dedicated to women of all shapes and sizes and to all those posts I get when they fret losing their hair during or after chemotherapy. You are beautiful now and always #acceptance #selflove #longhair #baldhead #shorthair #kifarakpaindahai #breastcancerawarenss #changingkarmaintomission
Her hubby, Ayushmann Khuranna always keeps supporting his lady love Tahira. In spite of having busy shoot schedules, Ayushmann managed to be there with his wife during her battle with cancer.
After her recovery, Tahira is all set to focus on directorial debut in Bollywood. She is currently gearing up to direct a film titled ‘Sharmaji Ki Beti’. Reportedly, the film will feature Madhuri Dixit and Saiyami Kher in the prominent roles.
